Learning to Fly Fish

I’m not sure why it’s so rare to see an accomplished fly fishing instructor write a brief guide to getting started in fly fishing. Maybe there’s the desire to keep something sacred a secret, or save it for the next book. Or maybe it just requires Haiku-like precision in writing. Anyway, this article by Ken Allen does as good a job as any I have read in explaining how to get started in fly fishing in less than a thousand words. “Multiply this story by dozens more and you begin to see why taking the time to identify bugs scientifically helps catch fish. It shows the fly rodder how to fish a nymph without actually scuba-diving to figure out how to duplicate the submerged nymph’s behavior.” On MaineToday.com.
